Living room wallpaper reveal

Gawd, I'm exhausted! But the living room wallpaper is finally up. My thanks to Jamie Foley and my husband, LB, for all of their hard work. I have a few more accessories on the way for this room and then I will do a full reveal.

Sherri - Those are carved wood shutters, just like the ones in the master bedroom and in The Pea's room.

Lacey said...

The wallpaper looks great. I cannot wait to see the full reveal. I am particularly in love with the wood shutters. Fabulous!

You have us on pins and needles! Can't wait to see the rest. That wallpaper is gorgeous. Wallpaper has so many variations, it's great to see someone use a nice strong color. Beautiful.

my favorite and my best said...

and i was about to ask about what in the high water in hades is on those windows...but i see that they are shutters?

Raina Cox said...

MFAMB - I can't take credit for sourcing the shutters, they came with the house.

The Shiny Pebble said...

Very promissing thus far. Cant' wait to see the rest.

Kate said...

its beautifully sexy....

Lady Ren said...

That wallpaper is beautiful. I love how it takes on the look of a painting with large brush strokes.
Those shutters are just amazing. I would love to have something like that in our hm- I want to put in shutters and would MUCH rather have something unique.

David said...

I have been slightly obsessed with this paper since you first give us a peak. This is by far my favorite colorway and I can't wait to see how it works in the rest of your space. So far so good...

Darling, it's fabulous. Now go rest.

Sol Kawage said...

Wow.

Lolo said...

That is fucking gorgeous. Moody, inviting, mysterious and glamorous all at once. Now you've got to wear some bias cut satin, casually sexed up hair and start speaking in a throaty purr.

Naomi said...

YES- like the colors, like the scale... chair and end table are great too. Is the wallpaper background gold? mustard? brown?

can't wait to see more!

Sorry I am so late with my praise, was recovering from freezerburn.

Anyway, it looks fabulous! Gawd, those shutters make sexier, don't they? And I love the paper -- I have a thing for the green colorway, but I love how the violet is so soft and feminine. Perfect for you, dahling.

Fantastic job!

ps: you are now a wallpapering superstar!!!

Raina Cox said...

Stagetecture - Hello and welcome to this deliciousness!

Naomi - It's a French gray. It went a bit olive in my room.

FROM THE RIGHT BANK said...

I'm breathless! It's gorgeous! And every time I see those shutters, I can't get over how fantastic they are!

Can you please pick out some wallpaper for me because you're clearly expert at it and I'm hopeless. I've moved on to the closet because I was so frustrated with not being able to find something for the powder room. And now I'm doubly frustrated.
